Hukanui provides a supportive environment for speakers of all languages. If your child has a first language other than English, they may need some support with their oral language and literacy skills.
The ELLs programme is taught at levels appropriate to the student's level of proficiency, in small groups of students from similar year-levels and with similar needs. The specialist team recognises that there are varied language needs from foundation to more advanced academic language and this is reflected in the delivery of the programme. Students may be withdrawn from class to receive sessions of intensive language support, or they may remain in class where they receive in-class support.
